Is there any possibility of autotrading on continuous contract ?

Or do you have to manually rollover contracts in autotrading ?

thanks

What platform? Some have symbol mapping.

But yes actual orders must of course go to a specific expiration. You could chart a continuous contact if your platform supports symbol mapping.

HI

I use Ninja and Multicharts for auto.
MC has the symbol mapping.
Thanks for the info.

Would that load the current contract and send the order signal to the appropriate contract ?

thanks

You can set up the mapping to do that. You specify the chart symbol and the symbol that should be used at the broker for trading.
